Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes his side could still win the title, and they can start by closing the gap on Chelsea by beating them on Sunday.
The Gunners go into the game high on confidence following a solid Premier League run which has seen them push to second in the table. Couple that with their FA cup semi-final victory over Reading at Wembley last week, and you have an Arsenal team high on confidence.
And when asked if his team can still push Chelsea all the way, Wenger feels his side have every chance of taking the battle to the wire.
“It will be possible yes,” Wenger told a press conference this morning.
“But Chelsea have the championship in their hands. What we can do is close the gap and we have an opportunity to do that at home and we want to take it.”
Chelsea meanwhile go into the game ten points clear at the top of the Premier League table after a 1-0 victory against Manchester United last weekend.
Good run of form
Wenger was also quick to highlight that his side’s good run means that they have every chance of overcoming Jose Mourinho’s side on Sunday, despite a poor run against the Blues.
“We have been close and they always have as stong team. Having said that the result on Sunday will be down to the performance on the day- we have an opportunity at home to beat them and we want to take that,” Wenger said.
“From a good run of form comes good belief and good solidarity. We know that we have passed many tests when we have been questions and we have another test on Sunday that we want to pass.”
Sunday will also mark the return of former Arsenal hero Cesc Fabregas, who will play at the Emirates for the first time with his Chelsea team.
